    OK, this might be a dumb question but I want to make sure I can do this

    I have a Series 2 right now and will be getting a Tivo HD in the near future.

    My question is:
    After I setup my new Tivo HD and start the daily downloads and disconnect the phone cable to my old Tivo will I have access to it to finish watching what I have left in my "Now Playing List"?

    I just wanted to make sure I can still get into it.

    For 30 days depending on the flavor of series 2 you have.

    Thx for the reply

    What do you mean by flavor?

    It's a Tivo brand Series 2, 80 hr with an added 80gb HD

    You can watch old recorded shows on an unsubscribed TiVo at any time. That as well as pause, rewind, etc of live tv continue to work.

    Yes, and again, there is no time limit. Your recordings will be available for viewing for as long as the tivo can still function regardless of it's subscription status. Subscriptions are required to record not to watch.

    Thx all

    That's what I thought but just wanted to make sure.

    One other question....

    When I got my first Tivo I backed up the OS.

    Should I do the same with this one or are you able to get a build CD pretty easily if something goes wrong?
